Thank you all for the warm welcome.
Angritter, sorry to have disappointed you. haha
A little about me: I enjoy shopping, fishing, gardening (potted plants and veggies), cooking/baking, singing at church, making jewelry and spending time with family.
I was diagnosed with RAD in 1993 and have been using a wheelchair full-time for about 18 years. To date, I have had ten surgeries to correct the damage the RAD has done to my joints. Unfortunately, my bones were too soft at the time the majority of the surgeries were done, so few of them were beneficial. My last surgery was a total hip replacement (left) about 12 years ago. By the end of this month, I am hoping to be on my way to recovery from having my right hip replaced as well.
Losing weight and getting healthy will help me in many aspects. I am hoping to get some pointers on how to maintain my calorie intake (hospital and rehab food) after having my hip replaced. Any suggestions are welcome!
